2018 Méo-Camuzet Frère et Soeurs Bourgogne Rouge "Cote d'Or Hemisphere Sud" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1486926 Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An attractively fresh and bright nose speaks of pretty red berry fruit, earth and a whiff of spice. There is both good volume and vibrancy to the delicious flavors that possess very good depth for a Bourgogne, all wrapped in a long if slightly rustic finish. One to consider. Burghound Outstanding Value! Inner quote mark (1/2020)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Bourgogne Côte d'Or Hemisphere Sud (Méo-Camuzet Frère & Soeurs) is a new bottling for Méo's négociant line, derived from three plots in the commune of Pommard. Offering up aromas of cassis, plums, raw cocoa and sweet soil tones, the wine is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and succulent, with powdery tannins and good concentration. Méo will bottle two other Bourgognes that we didn't taste: a "Hempisphere Nord" cuvée from the Côte de Nuits, produced from purchased fruit, and the classic domaine cuvée with which followers of this estate will be familiar. The 2018 vintage has turned out brilliantly at Domaine Méo-Camuzet, delivering exquisitely balanced wines that were strikingly expressive, even demonstrative, when I visited in late November. Méo's wines see quite a long élevage, and they can often be a little structural and introverted in the fall following the vintage, but these 2018s were simply singing. Méo began his harvest on August 29, and like a number of his peers, he observes that his parcels didn't necessarily ripen in the usual order in 2018, with his holdings in Corton in particular accumulating sugar very rapidly. But careful attention to the date of harvest meant that most wines in the cellar are around 13.5% alcohol this year, with only a couple hitting 14%. Beautifully balanced and structurally refined, the Méo-Camuzet wines will enjoy very long lives this year, and they come warmly recommended. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Bourgogne Côte d’Or "Hémisphere Sud" comes from Pommard holdings. It offers delicate blueberry and raspberry fruit on the nose, nicely defined though not powerful. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a little lactic in texture, displaying veins of dark chocolate toward the finish. Drink over the next 4–5 years. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "This is one of three Bourgognes made here this year: one from domaine grapes, one from Côte de Nuits fruit and this one from Côte de Beaune fruit. Light purple in colour, with pleasing fragrance, and a bit more weight of fruit in the mouth than expected. Cherry and raspberry. Tasted: November 2019."
